These light and fluffy waffles are flavored to taste like banana cream pudding and are drenched with a decadent homemade vanilla syrup.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day right?  So it’s the perfect time to go all out.  These pancakes are flavored with some banana extract.  I came across this stuff in the market and couldn’t resist.  Who wouldn’t want Banana Cream flavored anything?

This stuff is amazing, it smells just like banana pudding, and it definitely gave the same flavor to these waffles.  And before you ask, no this is not a sponsored post.  This is just me gushing over how amazing this stuff is.  It’s basically like adding vanilla to things, but better!

Speaking of vanilla…did I tell you these waffles are drenched in some homemade vanilla syrup. And it’s possibly one of the best things I’ve ever made.  Not just any syrup would do these waffles justice.  I wanted something that would complement the banana cream flavor, and regular syrup just wouldn’t have done it.

Don’t be intimidated by making your own syrup, I’m sure you have all the ingredients in your pantry, and it only takes a few minutes!  Trust me, it’s super simple, and will completely astound and amaze people.

  1. I searched the internet for a vanilla pancake syrup and was so happy to find yours! I’ve made it a few times now and have a helpful tip. Place the sugar and corn starch in the pan and whisk until combined and THEN add the water and bring to boil. This method keeps any lumps from forming. Delish, thank you!!

  2. I have made these twice now and they are delicious! For some reason though when I make the syrup I can never get the corn starch to fully dissolved and there are a few little lumps on her left. Syrup is good enough that we don’t mind too much though

    1. Kelsey, I’ve found that if you whisk the sugar and cornstarch together thoroughly in the saucepan and THEN add the water there are ZERO lumps!

  3. Hi! I’ve made this twice now. My family and I really enjoy it! I do have 1 tip though. I could taste the alcohol from my vanilla extract the first time I made it following your directions, so the second time I made it I added the vanilla in with the water and sugar before boiling 3-5 minutes and that burned all the alcohol taste off! This recipe is a keeper and I’m giving a jar to a friend today as an early Christmas present. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Hello!

    I am definitely planning on making those! Regarding the syrup though – I have a small family of two, so there’s a slight chance that there will be leftover syrup. Any thoughts on how long that would keep in the fridge, or would I be better off halving the recipe? Thanks for the fabulous recipe!

    1. I was able to keep the syrup for about 3-4 days. For a family of two and if you’re just wanting to use it for the waffles the one day I would recommend halving the recipe 🙂 I hope you enjoy!

  5. Hi!
    My husband is wanting me to make these for him but I need to go to the store to buy the flavoring. I haven’t seen these anywhere. Where did you purchase yours? Thank you!

    1. Hi Perla 🙂 I bought mine from Tom Thumb, which is the same as Safeway, and Vons depending on where you live. I found it in the baking aisle. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen it at other markets too. It was set up on a small cardboard display, it’s a new product. I hope you find it!

  7. I am sooooo in love with this idea, Serene! Banana cream?? I didn’t even know they made this stuff! This is definitely going on my brunch list! Pinned!
